Based in New York
and Brussels,
we are creatives,

experienced in architecture, design and urban planning. Where these disciplines meet technology, we blend them into designs that inspire, create meaning and instil emotion.

Socle is an international and multidisciplinary architecture studio.
We are well versed in arts and culture, find luxury in density and design immersive spaces.

We’ve learned the ropes making our hands dirty, feeling spaces not only by designing, but by building them. Often, there was art to be hung on the walls, as the world of contemporary art is one that feels close to ours.

Today, we’ve expanded our practice. Building on a broad foundation of teamwork and collaborations, we apply our conceptual Fingerspitzengefühl to the art of contemporary living and working.

Our architecture is one of contrasts.

That’s because as a duo, we yin each other’s yang. Between the two of us, we’ve lived in twelve cities on three continents—circumstances that have shaped our way of looking at the world and the many ways it provides us with a home, a place to work, an escape.

As a team, we stack our knowledge, ideas and experience a little higher still and lovingly share it with our clients.
